He added the attainment of lower middle income status has been followed by difficult economic challenges and choices as the country no longer enjoys favourable concessionary loan terms.

He said the government's efforts to address the economic challenges are yielding results.

President Mahama indicated that the transformation agenda of the government seeks to change the fundamentals of Ghana's economy by making it an export led one.
